Take time to do what makes your soul happy.” I don’t know who it’s by but it rings so true for me right now that I wanted to letter it.
As I’m trying to type out this post, my handsome, Creative Mews – Jaspurr has decided I need to pet him! So let me “Paws” for a minute or two for him! Sorry I couldn’t help myself there… if my husband should happen to read this he’d be rolling his eyes right now because he thinks my humor is corny! At least my kiddos still think I’m funny!
Anyways back to this post! I took a big leap of faith this past year to get back to what makes my soul happy and that is just where I’m at now, blogging, designing, and crafting! It’s my happy place other than with my family.
I also, just recently took another leap of faith and shared my design journey with all of my closest friends and family on my personal facebook. I’m always telling my kids they have to be brave, it’s okay to be scared about some things but they have to put on a brave face/smile and just do it. I needed to practice what I was preaching. So I too put on my brave face and shared it because it was just time. I feel so much better doing so.
I will be back on the blog soon to share how I used another Wreath Builder Set. If you are interested in this set, you can click on my shop page for more information. It’s a great set and for this lettering piece, I only used brushes from the set.
I’m finally back on the blog today! I am promoting my latest products, Wreath Builder Stamp Brush Sets 1-4 for Procreate on iPad Pro. Take your lettering/artwork to the next level. These are great brush sets, very versatile, you can create a lettering/artwork layout very quickly. You can either build up by layering the stamps or you are able to use just one brush, etc. There are many possibilities!
It is I, Jaspurr, I’m the Creative Mews of Jovial Creates! I have great Mews! I’m taking over the blog today, my Mom is busy with her design projects, taking care of the mini humans and the DOG, Ugh!
Anyways back to me, so my Mom finally did a kitty cat font… it should have been first but I will let that slide this time! It’s called, Purrfect Planner! It is a good feline, hand drawn font and has all sorts of wonderful things in it!
The Purrfect Planner has upper and lowercase with open type features and even includes a BONUS symbols font and 6 procreate brushes! Purrfect Planner was created for kitty lovers, planners and designers!

Well it’s been a good talk but I’ve got to catch up on my handsome sleep, catch bugs, stare out the window and at 3 am make sure to run around like a crazy animal!
My name is Jiffy Pup, I’m the C-WOOF-O of Jovial Creates. My Mom’s really sorry she hasn’t been blogging lately but she has been devoting her time to raising the mini humans, the cat, and working on some new products for her shop!! Anyways my Mom said I could say a couple of woofs to promote a new font, it’s called Doggy Planner! It’s a fetching, hand drawn font!
The Doggy Planner has upper and lowercase with open type features and even includes a BONUS symbols font! Doggy Planner was created with planners in mind but it would also be great for designers, doggy lovers, etc. I know you’re going to love it! You can check it out herein her shop, or hereon fontbundles.net and feel free to check out her other products as well!
Well I’ve got to go, I have squirrels to catch! Take Care!
Anyways this time I wanted to try a hedgehog. I played around with some ideas until I finally figured out I could use the antler die (within the set) to use for the Hedgie’s spines, that’s the spiky part.
So first I took the main body trimmed the ears so they weren’t so pointy. Then I die cut a bunch of spines. Using a piece of copy paper I traced the body, so I could lay out the spines around the outer side of the body just to gage how many spines I would need. I then used liquid glue so I would have some wiggle room to move the spines around.
Sorry it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here but I’ve been sick off and on this winter. Now I’ve been trying to get my creative mojo back!
Anyways today I am excited to share a new project with you. I am using Lawn Fawn products from their winter release, Woodland Critter Huggers (dies) and a few other dies as well. This is a versatile set! They have all the critters they came up with on their website but when I saw this die set, an idea snuck up and I wondered if I could pull it off.
My daughter is a big fan of My Little Pony and was excited to see the new movie. So, I thought I would just try to figure out a way to make this critter die set into the ponies…
Once complete, I added the pony’s cutie mark to the front of the banner or to the pony. I also, added other embellishments such as sequins and used the Spectrum Shimmer Clear marker. I added a ribbon to put them all together they look like they are holding hooves! Anyways in case you didn’t know who is who, from left to right:
Apple Jack (Yellow Orange, Cowgirl Earth Pony)
Pinkie Pie (Pink, Happily hyper/party throwing Earth Pony) – This is totally my daughter!
Rainbow Dash (Blue, Sporty Pegasus)
Twilight Sparkle (Purple, Princess Alicorn)
Rarity (White, Fashionista Unicorn)
Fluttershy (Yellow, Shy nature loving Pegasus)
Anyways I think I pulled it off! I hope you like them! Let me know what you think. Who’s your favorite My Little Pony?
